    Default HELP!!! dbl middle name vs maybe not cool old school name??!

    I am in desperate need for some advice!!!!!

    DS2 is due in 8 weeks, we had agreed on a name, and then my grandad passed away 2 weeks ago. We really want to acknowledge my grandad in his name, and the name we had agreed on acknowledged DHs Pop who passed away 10 years ago. This is a definite.

    So the name we had was:

    Lucas George (yes, entirely aware of the star wars reference we may get)

    My grandad was David. So the two options we have thought of are:
    Davey George
    Or
    Lucas David George

    Couple of things – I have a thing against dbl middle names.. I don’t know why really xpt I think its complicated for forms and DS1 only has the one… but do like the sound of the name together.

    Davey would be David on the birth certificate, we have a lot of Davids on both sides of the family, and I love Davey but DH wants him to have a grown up name also. (bit like Charles on birth certificate but getting Charlie)… DH is of no help because for once in his life he entirely agrees with me on BOTH names! I am a bit worried that David might be too old school and not cool old school but like bad 70’s old school!

    What one do you prefer?

    (*please be sensitive if you HATE either one, my grandad passing is still a little raw, also my granddads middle name is out, I have a 2year old nephew with that name.. that name was awesome though lol)

    I like the name David. Maybe because it is my Dad's name. I'm also not a fan of double MN's..but I think it is lovely to honour both families.
    I think I prefer Lucas

    Lucas David George is fantastic. Lots of people have double middle names. I think its a lovely thing to do.

    I would go with it! I'm not a big fan of 2 names but you should do it. My pop passed away 5 days before by DD was born (his first great grandchild). His middle name was James, and my DD's middle name is now jaymes.

    Lucas David George is lovely but personally would go with Davey George, that is a gorgeous name that will easily translate into a suitable adult name as well.
